Icelandic singer-songwriter Arny Margret

Árný Margrét
Arny Margret is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from the Westfjords of Iceland. Born and raised in a small town called Ísafjörður, she attended a music school from the age of six, learning to play the piano. When she was 14, she got her first guitar and spent hours and days in her bedroom teaching herself to play it, slowly reaching the confidence to write her own music.

Eydís Evensen

Eydís

In line with the traditions of her homeland, Eydís Evensen achieved an outstanding feat of tonal expressiveness with her debut “Bylur” last year. The Icelander carefully plays through dreamy piano harmonies, sometimes solo, sometimes accompanied by violin cello or trumpet but always with a well-formulated melancholy and a drama that immediately wreaks havoc on one’s soul.

Silla and Julius from the band BSÍ

BSÍ
Having started BSÍ under the premise of trying instruments they didn't know how to play, Silla Thorarensen (drums & vocals) and Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass guitar & toe-synths) understand their band as a playground for simply being who they are. Two best friends, rumbling and rolling through life, not taking themselves too seriously, struggling with self-doubts and imperfection while trying to see these as empowering virtues, unafraid to just do and be what—or however they feel.

Watch the traffic, bring a dancer and a therapist, BSÍ is coming to your town!
